My gorgeous gal pal Tereza got me these two books for Christmas; Grace, a memoir by Grace Coddington, Creative Director at US Vogue and Style Feed; The World’s Top Fashion Blogs by William Oliver.
Grace Coddington’s memoir starts with her work as a model and goes right through to her current role at Vogue. Anyone who saw The September Issue knows that she is a fierce and talented visionary and one tough cookie, especially as she has to work so closely with Anna Wintour! I think she’s a creative genius and absolutely love her spreads in Vogue, they are so beautiful.
Style Feed highlights 40 fashion blogs from 2005 – 2011. There are blogs I’ve heard of and follow like The Blonde Salad and Karla’s Closet and there are a lot which I hadn’t seen before and I can’t wait to start following their work.
I’m so excited to get stuck into these books and I know there will definitely be some new influences that will come through into my blog. Who knows I may be featured in a book like this one day. A girl can dream hey?!
